Pete Wylie and The Mighty Wah!...
On Saturday night Paul and I went to see Pete Wylie and The Mighty Wah! at the Islington Academy Bar. It was a short set (curfew at 9:45pm) but packed with great songs, both old and new. Sure enough we got all the hits including Come Back, Sinful and The Story Of The Blues.
Pete Wylie has the biggest mouth and biggest ego in the business but coupling that with a neat line in self-deprecation provides for quite an amusing line in inter-song stage chat.
"What are you doing there? Sending a text message? What are you going to say? 'Wylie's shit'?"
"'My life flashed before me. Only I wasn't in it' - that's a line from another one of my fucking songs you never bought!"
"I hope someone from the band pulls tonight. We're all single and could do with a shag. If not it'll be the six of us in the circle on the bus on the way home."
